The Demon is the reverse of God.

If only things were that simple, but the truth of the matter is that we live in a world awash in shades of grey. Good and Evil, Right and Wrong, Light and Darkness — they’re just flip sides of the same bloody coin, and it is where the two meet that the real story begins.

Yeats famously said, “The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

I think their patience is wearing thin.

We are in the midst of a cultural and spiritual transformation. a proverbial sea change, a war unlike anything we’ve experienced in several decades.

That the earth owes. I hear it now above me.

— W. Shakespeare, The Tempest

I am awash in a sea of grey, surrounded by spirits, black and white, all about me. Steadfast, I remain resolute, my senses growing ever sharper, waiting for the roots of magic to flower and flourish once more.

Sacrifices must be made. Pyres must be lit. The cards fall where they may…
